Should You Start Thinking About End of Season AC Repair Needs?

Monday, September 16th, 2019

No, that’s not a typo. It’s still a good idea to think about your air conditioner as the cooling season winds down. Air conditioners require repairs, and it’s going to be very important to take care of these repairs before the cold sets in. We’ve got a plethora of reasons why fall is the perfect time to check-in on the needs of your AC system.

Basically, AC damage can only get worse as it gets colder. But it’s going to be hard to notice this when you’re not paying any attention to your AC in the winter. You’re going to want to make sure that you schedule repairs before they can get worse, in order to maximize the return on your AC investment.

Well, let’s get right into the reasons why fall is the perfect time for AC repairs.

The Power of AC Duct Cleaning for Indoor Air and AC Performance

Monday, August 5th, 2019

duct-being-cleanedIf you’re anything like the average homeowner, you probably don’t think about your ductwork very often, unless you have a major problem with it—like it has a huge hole that’s allowing cooled air to escape into your attic rather than making it into your living space.

For the most part, ducts are hidden from sight, traveling through spaces between walls and beneath crawlspaces. Exposed ducts are rare in homes, and even then you wouldn’t notice anything about the inside of them.

The fact of the matter is, the inside of your ductwork can be quite dirty! Think about that—ductwork is responsible for transferring conditioned air from your HVAC system into your home—so if the interior of that ductwork has dirt and dust inside of it, then that dirt and dust is going to enter your home!

Don’t Let This Refrigerant Myth Fool You!

Monday, July 22nd, 2019

closeup-view-of-refrigerant-lineThere’s a common myth regarding AC refrigerant out there, one that homeowners unfortunately have heard from dishonest—or well-meaning but ill-experienced—HVAC “professionals.” That is, that refrigerant needs to be “topped off” every once in awhile, such as during your maintenance session.

We understand why someone might believe this misconception. Refrigerant is like a “fuel” for your air conditioner, right? Well—sort of. It is what allows the cooling process, but it’s not like gasoline in a car or oil in a heater in that it depletes.

Your air conditioner will never run out of refrigerant—unless something is wrong. Read on to learn more!

Ductless AC Repair Needs to Be Aware of

Monday, July 8th, 2019

woman-sitting-on-couch-turning-on-air-handlerOne of the best options for cooling and heating homes in our area is with a ductless system.

Instead of operating through a network of ducts connected to an indoor handler and evaporator unit, ductless systems break up the indoor unit and blower fans—air handlers—to distribute the system in modular units throughout the home, with each air handler mounted up high on the rooms they’re intended for.

We could go on forever about why going ductless is a good idea for most homes. But it’s also important for us to be honest and note, they can have unique repair needs. Now, we can’t go on without saying these repair issues are a lot more likely if the system wasn’t installed correctly to begin with, or if it is improperly maintained. Regardless, whether you’re thinking of installing a ductless system for the first time or you’ve already had a ductless system in place for a while, it’s important for you to know of these possible issues. Read on!

Don’t Neglect These Noises From Your AC!

Monday, May 27th, 2019

woman-covering-her-ears-on-white-backgroundIt may be fairly easy to understand why, but summer is the most likely season for air conditioners to develop problems. Sure, we may have a spring or fall heat wave that requires AC use for a week or two, but the time of the year that our cooling systems get the most use is definitely summer, and therefore it’s more likely for various parts to begin breaking down then.

It’s vital that you have your air conditioner checked out by a professional if you notice any signs of disrepair, and preventing these issues is possible with routine maintenance. If you haven’t scheduled your tune-up yet this year, now is the time!

In the meantime, it’s always a good idea to know what kind of noises indicate a problem with your air conditioner, and what subsequent repair needs you may be facing as a result.
